Last Week Analysis - Bear Market Rally Collpasing and Range Bound Trading

Nifty had a bumpy ride last week and lost about 1.6%. It is not a clear buy signal for conservative investors. As the 30 years yield of US treasuries bottomed, many investors started coming out of treasuries and they are not sure of what to do with the money. Consequently they have started invested again in US Stocks. S&P 500 tried to regain its 200 days of EMA 1240 and end up in making last week high of 1239.03 which is just 1 point below its 200 days EMA. This is the main cause of the last week rally in US Market. Indian markets and other Asian markets tried to catch up US market trends. Again stocks are vulnerable of steep pullback.

Note: US Interest Rate Bottom retesting will happen again in the coming months.


Last Week Low: 5033.95 (Refer to the strong support level 4800, would be broken in the coming weeks)
Last Week High: 5160.20 (Strong resistance level build around 5100 range)

Looking at the chart below clearly indicates the declining 200 days EMA and 50 days EMA. It means that market will tend to go lower in the long term with occasional bear market rally. In this market, buy and hold strategy would fail. We need to follow the key technical support levels and play with swing trading strategies. Swing trading involves high risks when range bound trading completely broken. Betting on volatility with negative bias would yield a lot in this market. Institutional investors are smartly exiting their long and short positions based on the market condition and keep switching their assets. When treasuries are reaching almost a top level, then institutional investors will exit from the treasuries and t-bills and switch back to undervalues banking and finance sector. This is the main cause of the rally in the last two trading sessions.


Nifty technical levels suggest betting on volatility as key support level to be broken in the coming weeks.

If you are conservative investors, then exit from your long positions with the recent rally and hold currency or indian T-Bills. The key resistance level for Nifty came down to 5100 and the key support level for Nifty is 4960, 4800 and 4747. The next key resistance level is 5225.90 and 5428.49, which is very much unlikely we will reach these level. Market is getting ready for imminent correction now. Nifty might experience a double dip in Indian Market along with world market correction in the long term (about 2 years). With double dip, Nifty is expected to touch 2600 levels set on Oct 2008 and Mar 2009. Wait for some more time to get more clues on "double dip on Nifty"
